Hello, Michael7, you wrote: S>> there was no perturbation of serial numbers P-III, except as in the environment of disturbed . M> Was. Already I will not recall all particulars, but even someone from politicians something about it spoke and as a result of people assured that the browser does not transfer serial number, etc. It it seemed, instead of was. Population half-percent is capable to lift noise such that will seem that now the moon falls. All remaining pay for productivity. Not so it is a lot of politicians of all, and at them the task in the core to pull out languages - even they not all were excited.

Well, and what hinders to pay hardly more expensively for repair and maintenance of a tractor Belarus, or there John Dira, release of 1960? It after all will work absolutely perfectly, it can be repaired most and so on. Only , also will guzzle so many that will pay more cheaply for the modern tractor. Do not let out more tractors of the sample of 1960? If enough people wants to pay for them - let out. Capitalism, . Besides, always it is possible to import from Russia - at us it shaft. M> with telemetry generally idiocy full. Danger of trojans which something transfer also something do besides will of the owner, people understand and put antiviruses and other decisions that them to delete or , and just the same trojan in the form of the whole OS consider for itself normal. Danger of trojans not that they do something besides will of the owner, and that they do something such that at the owner becomes less money. Machines generally does about three billion actions a second on the processor - there is no moron who would demand acknowledgement for each action, and generally would like to state any will on each action of the machine. While the machine does well, let does, and the she demands less attention, the better. And so the Windows do well, and trojans badly. S>> for minority is Linux, Libre Office, GIMP and so on. M> And for this minority there are plans to make Secure Boot not disconnected, bios already made in new boards with protection against the user, whether and that understand "disturbed " everyones there coreboot invent... And what for to buy new iron? Old years on twenty still a minimum, at least for house and office usage suffices. Let accumulate now spare parts the next 50 years, and sit with them. Are not ready to sacrifice labor productivity for the sake of absence of telemetry? Money it is a pity to enclose in an equipment store for 50 years? Well, and what to do.
